I have always felt that the depth of the Chinese culture was awe-inspiring. But I have never felt more inadequate as a Westerner as when i witnessed that amazing spectacle. It was a jaw-dropping and inspiring thing to watch. My favorite was the moveable type display. I thought (as did my wife) “how did they get machines to act that way and not break down”. Then the performers popped out and I was forever moved. What an amazing people and display!
